Pelican Whole House Water Treatment Systems

Water is a quintessential element of our existence as we drink it, we use it for cooking and bathing, and it helps keep us alive. Unfortunately, these days we have to deal with a serious problem, the poor quality of the domestic water supply. Water that contains all sorts of contaminants and toxins is not safe for use and consumption, so efforts have to go into purifying it. Luckily for us, one of the biggest concerns of the Pelican Water Systems company is the quality of the water we drink every day, so they have developed systems that are meant to keep us away from any harmful contaminants by using the latest technologies in terms of water treatment.

The whole house filters are highly efficient and they require little maintenance. There are two sizes available to choose from, namely the PC600 model with a capacity of 600,000 gallons and the PC1000 model with a capacity of 1,000,000 gallons.

NaturSoft Salt Free Water Softeners

It comes in two sizes, one for 1-3 bathrooms, which is the NS3 model and one for 4-6 bathrooms, the NS6 model. They both come with a sediment pre-filter which has to be changed every 6-9 months, while the tank media needs no replacement. Additionally, they are backed by a lifetime warranty and they are ready to install.

Due to this combination, the media will be able to filter all sorts of contaminants, including chlorine, chloramines, pesticides, herbicide, pharmaceuticals and so on. The fourth and last stage will prevent and reduce the growth of bacteria and algae by using a copper and zinc oxidation media (KDF-55).

Water Softeners

To complete the water purification process, Pelican provides advanced and highly-efficient water softeners that remove the harsh and damaging minerals from the water. The best part is that they are salt-free so the taste of the water is not modified in any way and the beneficial minerals are not eliminated.

They are used to make the water softer in order to prevent limescale that could damage your appliances and affect your skin and hair. If the water in your home is hard, you will often notice limescale deposits after cleaning the bathroom and on the internal parts of the dishwasher or washing machine, and even have a feeling of dry skin after bathing. A softener can solve all these issues by conditioning the water without making it feel slippery. The systems can be installed either indoors or outdoors – just make sure that you keep them away from freezing temperatures.

The NS3 model can handle up to 3 bathrooms while the NS6 is powerful enough to handle up to 6 bathrooms. There is a pre-filter included preventing large debris from getting into the softener in order to prolong its life as well.
